Prepping for Christmas

I am just about finished with the Christmas gift, cards, and all, but that has taken SO much time... Here is a gift card holder that I made for Tami's VSN challenge.
This was cut with my Silhouette... I am LOVING this thing (have I mentioned that before???)!!!!  The flower die is from MFT, the brad is an oldie from SU, Liquid Pearls, and then some twine... SUPER easy, all courtesy of the FABULOUS Silhouette.
On the inside is a Chicago Starbucks gift card that I squirreled away this summer.  They have been sold out of these bad boys for quite some time.
Speaking of Chicago, here's another VSN card (again) using the Silhouette to cut the Chicago skyline.  This was for Lee's VSN challenge, and my husband's favorite card I made.  This card is crazy easy to mass-produce, and I did :)
The sentiment and star were mounted on my Fiskars stamp press, so I didn't even have to think about it for the other cards I made.  The skyline was covered in VersaMark then embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder from SU. {Lee's challenge called for glitter, but a few months back, I packed up all my loose glitter and shipped it off to Lee. :)}  Add a gem and call it done!
Check back tomorrow for a new WTUI challenge hosted by yours truly!
